Differential scanning calorimetry

The DSC 5 is the first DSC capable of allowing users to optimize measurement conditions by carrying out DSC measurements in either power compensation mode or heat flux mode. The three-axis sample robot enhances productivity, efficiency and reproducibility. Users can store up to 96 sample crucibles and seven reference crucibles while protecting samples from any environmental influences, and two sample tray options make operation around the clock possible. This is a suitable choice for all laboratories, from industrial development and academic research to production and quality assurance.

X-ray inspection system

Dypipe X-ray inspection system reliably detects foreign bodies and ejects defective or contaminated products, guaranteeing an extremely high level of safety for viscous and liquid products. Equipped with an innovative test piece insertion system that enables verification in live operation, users maintain efficiency when the line is in production. Designed for flexibility and ease of use, this inspection system comes with a range of separators, connections and mounting options that are suitable for any production line.Minebea Intec; Hamburg, Germany+49-40-67960-158; www.minebea-intec.com


Solid or liquid level measures

The BMRX-100 rotary level indicator is an electromechanical device used in solids and powders to prevent bin overfills, dry runs or to shut off a process. Without a printed circuit board, it is impervious to moisture and vibration found in many tough processing environments. It prevents waste and saves time when handling bulk materials stored in bins and silos and is adaptable to light, medium or heavy materials.
